Maine Sea Duck Hunting Guide Service
Thornehead Guide Service sets itself apart from the others by offering world class sea duck hunting and unmatched client services in Freeport Maine, one of the most popular travel destinations in New England. Maine is the traditional home of sea duck hunting on the North Atlantic. Our clients hunt trophy Maine Eiders, Long-tailed Ducks (Old Squaws), and Scoters in the scenic backdrop of the magnificent, rugged, coast of Maine.
Our full-time Registered Maine Hunting Guides utilize the finest handmade, premium waterfowl decoys available while hunting from off-shore ledges, Bankes Layout Boats, and our 21 foot custom Polar Kraft Duck Boat to create exciting, fast-paced, waterfowling adventures. We pay attention to detail at Thornehead Guide Service. All of our equipment is modern, top of the line, and meticulously maintained for your safety and enjoyment. Our hunts are customized based upon our client’s wishes. Most clients dream of trophy Maine Eiders for their wall. However, you inform us of your target species and preferred hunting style and we will make it happen!
Thornehead Guide Service has recently expanded to offer guided Maine Upland Bird hunts over pointing dogs. During October through early December, our alder thickets, old overgrown farms and apple orchards are filled with prized Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock. These birds are wild and will challenge even the most accomplished wingshooters. These hunts offer our clients an additional hunting opportunity during their stay in Maine. Hunt all day or only a half day with our Upland Bird Guide. The choice is yours!
Our clients typically arrive at the Portland International Jetport and find their lodging accommodations in Freeport are only a short 20 minute drive away. Freeport is a quaint, coastal community which offers everything our guests need. The Freeport area offers some of the most diverse dining opportunities in Maine. Choose between Maine lobster, steamed clams, steak or any other dish you desire.
Our partner, the Hilton Garden Inn-Freeport, welcomes our clients with the finest lodging accommodations in the business. By not utilizing a traditional hunting lodge, our guests can choose to dine, relax, and sightsee at their own pace. Many clients choose to bring their families along on their Maine adventure as there is so much for them to do and see.
Freeport is the home of LL Bean. Simply walk to the LL Bean Hunting and Fishing Store from your hotel to pick up your hunting license, shotshells, or shop around their expansive outdoor store. Cabelas Retail Store and other conveniences are all located close by.
